Puppy Mill In Our Own Back Yard
WARNING: DISTURBING VIDEO. It's not often that you hear about puppy mills in the city, but we're not surprised by much anymore. 70 dogs were found in a home on Chicago's south side, where the dogs were without food and water, and were living in small bird cages. Appears to be mostly a "pocket-pup" operation, but there was a dachshund or two at least, from what we can tell. Above is footage of the raid from the Cook County Sheriff's Department. In addition to the puppies, police confiscated one pound of marijuana, a handgun and $3,000 cash.
Here is one of the dachshunds who is looking for a home...a pretty little piebald.
